Nail polish is said to have originated in China as early as 3000 BC. Since then it has been worn by young kids, musicians and even baseball players. Did you know that catchers often wear neon-colored nail polish so the pitcher can more easily see the signs the catcher is showing? Maybe that means their personality is just as zingy as their nails. Or it's just practical. Which also says something about their personality. The color of the nail polish you wear doesn't have to directly translate to the kind of person you are. In fact, in most cases it won't.
So what does it say, then? Choosing bright colors could mean that you like standing out. Or you're so terrified of getting lost that you wear it so you're easy to locate. Maybe you like a clear coat. This could mean you are low maintenance and down to earth, or it could mean that you're lazy and do the bare minimum. Your personality is who you are. It's how you act, how you treat people and the subconscious things you do every day. Your outward enhancements like clothes, jewelry and yes, nail polish, are all just ways to outwardly express your personality. So which nail polish matches you the best? Take this quiz to find out!
